    TSR: Tropical storm "Yasi" second most damaging Australian cyclone on record
    Thursday, February 3, 2011


    According to TSR (Tropical Storm Risk) Cyclone Yasi will be the second most damaging Australian cyclone on record after cyclone Tracy which struck Darwin in 1974.

    "Based on Yasi's immediate post-event windfield and TSR's new high resolution loss model we are looking at a total insured damage bill of about A$ 3.5 billion" said Professor Mark Saunders, the TSR Director.

    Yasi made landfall near to Mission Beach in northeast Queensland at around 14:00 GMT on 2 February (00:00 GMT on 3 February local time) with peak 3-sec gusts of about 170 mph. Yasi is the most powerful cyclone to strike the east coast of Australia since 1918.

    The immediate post-event peak gust windfield for Yasi as modelled by TSR (Tropical Storm Risk) is shown in the attached image. This shows that peak gusts of at least 100 mph affected a coastal extent of 100 miles stretching from just south of Cairns to Ingham.
    Gusts exceeding 100mph also extended over 100 miles inland.

    Fortunately the major cities of Cairns and Townsville were largely spared significant damage; otherwise the insured loss from Yasi may have rivalled that from cyclone Tracy.

    Very intense Cyclone Yasi hits Queensland Hard
    Wednesday, February 2, 2011
    Cyclone Yasi has crossed the northern Queensland coastline, the storm which is roughly three times larger than the UK has crossed onto land and is making its presence felt.

    Rick Threlfall, spokesman for the Bureau of Meteorology says that the category five cyclone is producing winds up to 280 km per hour. The worst is being felt around the mission beach area where the eye of the storm is expected to cross onto land today.

    “The real core strength of the winds will be in the eye wall,” he said. The storm is currently measured at roughly 500km wide with the eye of the storm roughly 35km in diameter but the strongest and most destructive wind is directly around the eye.

    “So people in that Mission Beach area anywhere between Innisfail and about Cardwell will be starting to feel winds potentially up to that level well in the next few minutes.”

    Townsville is being hit hard with trees being ripped from the ground, windows being shattered and roofing being blown away. Wil Kemp, a resident of Castle Hill said,

    “The rain doesn’t fall, it just comes in horizontally as the wind goes roaring past.”

    Thousands have been evacuated from the cyclone’s path but many were either too late or unwilling to leave. Those who have remained have been advised to board up windows and stay sheltered, those living on low ground have been advised to move to higher ground to avoid the estimated 5 metre storm surge which is expected to engulf many low lying areas.

    Powerful Cat.4 cyclone nears flood-hit Queensland

    (CNN) -- Australians braced Wednesday as a massive, powerful cyclone neared the already flood-ravaged northern state of Queensland.

    Tropical Cyclone Yasi had strengthened to a Category 5, the highest designation on Australia's cyclone classification system, and was predicted to make landfall near midnight (9 a.m. ET) Wednesday.

    "I have all my rations ready to go, batteries, candles," said Carl Butcher, who lives in the coastal city of Cairns in Queensland state. "The authorities have been very proactive in informing us about this system. We have known about it for a week. That is more than enough time to prepare for it."

    More than 20 people died and thousands of homes were wrecked when severe flooding hit Queensland in January, affecting 3.1 million people.

    Lachlan Brown, from Townsville, told CNN he was currently experiencing the calm before the storm.

    "The street lights have been going on and off. We lost power a couple of times and it's come back on. There's quite a few boats in the creek next to us tied to jetties, but they're moving around a lot so I don't know how long they're going to last."
    Carly Wallace, who lives near Cairns, said she'd been stocking up on food and water.
    "There's always panic buying when it comes to cyclones -- everyone goes a little bit crazy. But with this one, because of how big it is, everyone's going out buying everything," the Atherton Tablelands resident said.

    Wallace said grocery store shelves were empty in the town of Atherton.
    "Nearly everything was gone off the shelf, even long-life milk and things like batteries and tape. There was no bread at all. So everyone is panic-buying but I think it's for good reason."

    Severe Tropical Cyclone Yasi has winds of 230 kph (143 mph) and maximum wind gusts of 300 kph (186 mph), and is expected to maintain that intensity until making landfall, forecasters said.
    CNN Meteorologist Jennifer Delgado said there will be heavy rain in Queensland and the rain could continue until Friday.

    Queensland is no stranger to cyclones.
    Many residents of the state had to take shelter last March when Category 3 Tropical Cyclone Ului barreled in. But that storm will not compare to the strength that Tropical Cyclone Yasi packs.

    Queensland Deputy Police Commissioner Ian Stewart warned the state faces "one of the most significant weather events" in its history.

    "This is a life-threatening storm, and people need to understand that they have a final window of opportunity to self-evacuate," Stewart said earlier.
    The state's premier, Anna Bligh, has urged residents in the threatened areas to take sensible precautions and to stay inside once the storm hits.

    The cyclone threatens more devastation for Queensland, which already has been hit by deadly flooding in recent weeks.

    Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has announced a one-off flood tax aimed at helping to pay for the estimated AUS $5.6 billion (US $5.58 billion) damage caused.
    "It's all deserted, has been for quite a few hours. There's quite a few trees down and some powerlines.
